  1. Re: Bradley An Ace, Till Late in 12th; Weird Ending Mars HBO Main Event

    Bradley did OK with a back pedaling Vargas who really should have imposed or at least attempted to impose himself on Bradley. P. Russell though a great referee should consider retirement. Mistakes...
  2. Re: Slight Return: Andre Ward Crushes Paul Smith In the Ninth

    Well, who has Golovkin fought really ??? Certainly no world beaters. Now Kovalev - different story. His resume sparkles compared to Golovkins. I looked for the subtle nuances of Wards considerable...
  3. Re: MY B.E.T: Even If Rust Is Present, Ward Too Talented For Smith

    A good performance by Ward. He was caught flush on at least two occasions but took the punches well. His opposition tonight was no less than Golovkins prior opponents and in my opinion Ward is still...
  4. Re: Slight Return: Andre Ward Crushes Paul Smith In the Ninth

    A good performance by Ward. He was caught flush on at least two occasions but took the punches well. His opposition tonight was no less than Golovkins prior opponents and in my opinion Ward is still...
  5. Re: Khan Edges Out Algieri in Solid Scrap, in Brooklyn

    Very good fight with not much between these two in my opinion. Could have easily been scored a draw IMHO. Khan certainly has defensive flaws with his head straight up when he backs out. I still find...

    Re: The Greatness of Floyd Mayweather

    Interesting article and much kudos to the writer for the in depth research on past and current fighters. I hate to criticize any fighters style just because it takes a lot of cojones to get into that...
  7. Re: Golovkin Is Too Strong For Any Current Middleweight To Outbox

    Great feature as usual from Frank L. I am not a triple G believer. Well, I do believe he is a very good fighter with good power and very good punch placement but I need to see him fight without being...
  8. Re: Alvarez Impressed Against Kirkland... But Don't Discount Style Factor

    I thought Kirkland was made to order for Alvarez. Canelo did execute well though and finished Kirkland just like I expected him to. Any comparisons with Floyd are misplaced. Two different fighters....

    Re: AND STIIIIIL...Floyd Bests Manny Via UD12

    Mort - great analysis as usual but I have to respectfully disagree. Mayweathers magic is his innate ability to slow a fight down. He also switches up the power on those right hands and so the...

    Re: AND STIIIIIL...Floyd Bests Manny Via UD12

    Not a fight that will stand out in the annals of boxing history as a great 'action' fight but nonetheless this was a superb performance by a boxing master. Its funny how people criticize Floyds...
  11. Re: Quillin Power Touches Lee, But Judges See A Draw

    Quillan looked okay for the time he took off. Good, absorbing fight with two way action Slow at times but definitely a good fight. Meanwhile Lamont Petersen just got robbed.
  12. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: MayPac Compares To Leonard-Duran I

    @Brad - I guess my memories telegraph my age:). Hearns looked really wound up and tight while Leonard was loose and relaxed. For a guy that lean Hearns wingspan was awesome. He had a freakish build...
  13. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: MayPac Compares To Leonard-Duran I

    Great comments all around. Shows the wealth of boxing knowledge in this forum is unrivaled ! I thought this might be an interesting footnote/question for you guys. Whats the most memorable super...
  14. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: MayPac Compares To Leonard-Duran I

    Franks on target again. I thought Leonard/Hearns 1 was comparable but in reality Leonard/Hearns 1 was indeed an authentic super fight between two athletes in their absolute prime. A fighters super...

    Re: ROACH: "We Aim To Beat Floyd Every Round"

    Great points by all including Freddie Roach. Manny can beat Floyd but IMO he will not. After analyzing and rethinking several outcomes I believe the fight will be won by the fighter who can make the...
  16. Re: Golovkin-Monroe: Swarmer vs. Boxer, Who Has The Advantage?

    Great perspective by Frank. Unfortunately, I have not seen enough of Monroe to gauge his ability with regards to his upcoming fight with Triple G. I will say this however - I am not of the opinion...
  17. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: Mayweather's Most Virtuoso Performance

    Nice article though I have a slightly different take on this. I also think this was a virtuoso performance by Floyd but moreso because this was the more mature Floyd who now realizes he cannot or...
  18. Re: Kovalev Shows Extreme Versatility Against Pascal

    Great comments by all. I couldn't agree more with mortcola though. BHop was getting through with those occasional right hands but just did not have the stamina to capitalize. Same with Pascal. No...
  19. Re: Kovalev Shows Extreme Versatility Against Pascal

    Good performance by Kovalev. Showed mettle and dexterity and appears to really believe in his ability to power through his opponents much like Golovkin. I need to see someone walk these guys back...
  20. Re: Thurman Cleared The Bar Of Expectation, Barely, Against Guerrero

    Quite True.......
  21. Re: Thurman Cleared The Bar Of Expectation, Barely, Against Guerrero

    Quite True.......
  22. Re: Thurman Cleared The Bar Of Expectation, Barely, Against Guerrero

    Franks analysis is spot on in my opinion. I hesitated initially making any assumptions mostly because "The Ghost" is a capable fighter who can box and brawl with the best of them. Guerrero is at best...
  23. Re: ROACH: "I Think Floyd Needs To Be Humbled, and Manny Is the One To Do It"

    Its probably too early to offer my predictions on how this fight will pan out but since I do not intend to spend too much ink on a subject that will be fiercely debated over the next 2 months I will...
  24. Re: Is a Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight Still Relevant?

    I disagree with the writers implied jibe that Hagler/Leonard was not great. It certainly did not equal Hagler/Hearns nor Ward/Gatty in terms of brutality but great fights are all about the pre fight...
  25. Re: Technical Scrap Expected, Brawl Breaks Out, Crawford Gets W Over Gamboa

    Great fight ! I am not quite ready to declare Crawford a "great" fighter however. He showed calmness and poise in the first few rounds which is good for a young developing fighter but I saw him give...
